Show / Hide toolbar from KeePassXC Settings #1819

vsvyatski commented Apr 6, 2018


I have noticed that KeePassXC 2.3.1 has an empty context menu shown when one right-clicks on the main menu. It has a checkbox inside. If one selects/unselects the checkbox the application's main toolbar is shown/hidden. I believe this functionality is a leftover from the version 2.2.4 that was meant to be removed. In the 2.2.4 the context menu had the caption "Toolbar" and also there was View > Toolbar item in the main menu which is gone in 2.3.1. So I've just removed that context menu.

Motivation and context

  1. I believe that somebody just forgot to remove that context menu during the removal of View > Toolbar.
  2. Because the menu has no caption on it, it doesn't give a user much clue what it does.
  3. At the moment of writing the problem is still not fixed in the develop branch.

How has this been tested?

It is a small UI bug, so it has been tested only manually. Test environment details are below:

There is an open issue wanting that to move this into the settings page (which I agree with): #1618 (comment)

@droidmonkey As I understand, this PR needs to be "extended" to allow that setting, doesn't it?

@droidmonkey That is done. The UI was implemented exactly the way it was proposed there.
